    trek fuel ex 5 2014 question

    I saw this bike on closeout for a great price.
    I'm 5'7" leg size 28 inches
    I think I need a 17.5 inch from but the bike is 18.5
    Will that one inch be a problem?

    you should be good, i am 5,8 with a 29 in inseam and ride the 18.5, which is actually a 17.5 with a virtual sizing of 18.5. the 17.5 is actually a 16.5.

    I would think 17.5 virtual would be fine. The 18.5 or 17.5 actual might be a bit long but you can throw a leg over on the bike and see how it fits.
